Poem by Thomas Urquhart


Epigrams. The Second Booke. № 30. That the setled quiet of our mind ought not to be moved at sinister accidents


MAn should for no infortunate event
Deprive himselfe of that, which fortune is
Vnable to restore him: the content
Of mind, ease, and tranquilsity of his
Reposed spirit; for who lacketh those,
Can nothing else possesse, that's worth to lose.
